Letter editor features bullet points and numbering

Alto uses its own word processor to create letter templates. As part of this process, you're able to use the editor features in the processor to change the numbering and bullet point style in a list.  

Whilst you don't need any knowledge of HTML to format these features, if you are familiar with it, you can click Source in any letter template to write your letter in HTML instead of text.
